This is a Rectangular Old and Fabulous Rare Pandanus Serving bowl from the Island of Wuvulu of Papua New Guinea. The Pandanus is a beautiful red breadfruit and a very important staple of the diet, because it is very high in vitamin C.It is a wonderful plant and provides housing, clothing and food for the people. The fruits provide a variety of nuts and also oil and coloring for cooking. These seedless fruits were often baked with Yams and Sago.
These Pandanus Bowls are carved from a single piece of wood to form a shallow vessel almost paired down to a knife like thinness. The Wuvulu tribal people embody the spare, minimalist aesthetic of design.
This elongated wood shaped rectangular bowl was used in the serving of Pandanus with ceremonial feasts. It would be a wonderful addition to your home or collection.
